Q: What is radioactivity?

Answer:
Radioactivity is a property of certain types of unstable atoms called radio-nuclides that undergo spontaneous disintegration in which energy is liberated, generally resulting in the formation of new nuclides. The process is accompanied by the emission of one or more types of radiation, such as alpha particles, beta particles and gamma rays.
